Must say, have a feeling that young O´Kane did more in 45 minutes than Junior has since signing, Han looks like he could be a good one, time will tell. Shields not at the races, Stanton looks like a very average player, Leahy....wont even go there. Boyle looks past it......and the managements tactics a shambles.

I don't see Magilton managing. If it all goes to pot, it will be his job to find a successor as manager.

Leahy and Junior have been very disappointing. We're paying the price for the lack of pre season games. Still think we'll come good but it'll be all too little too late.

Always available, but my fee has gone up. It may be Easter week but not even I can perform miracles like that 😂
Ahhh come the week that is in it...sure you could do miracles!!! :)

On a serious note....who do you think JM will be sending WhatsApps to, in case this doesnt click and he has to change our management team???
?? WhatsApps I'm lost? If it all falls apart I could see Magilton taking it on?
WhatsApp is the new phone call!!! I doubt very much that Magilton will take it on, I would assume he would take in someone from the UK. Whatever happens players need a serious kick up the back sides.

I know what WhatsApp is I just thought there was something in it as in he was messaging somebody already. Ré the players needing a kick up the backside. There appears to be no hunger or fight or drive in the side. Slow one paced football. And it's been that way for a while now.

This is it. "Give them time". How long? Not much point if we're already out of it.
The 3 game pre season was a shambles. Its all well and good working on formations in training. But you need to put them into practice in competitive friendlies. Everyone had us sussed at this stage. Press high and don't let us out. Midfield is overrun. There are a lot of issues that need addressing. Certain Players appear to be going through the motions no drive no determination to drag us into games. It might only be 2 games into the season, but it looks like we are in disarray already. It's gonna be a long tough season ahead.

We are a shambles and there is no defending it. Fillipo isn't close enough to being good enough to manage Dundalk. His record must be as bad as Sean McCaffrey's at this stage and Bill needs to face facts that he has got it badly wrong.

I'm always at pains not to make rash judgements and believe managers need time but there are too many worrying signs, I just can't see it getting better.

To be fair there are a lot of players off form. Slogget is not up to the the level, Leahy the same. Don't want to write Stanton off this early but that was an awful performance from him, Junior the same. Hopefully Zahibo is a superstar because we are desperately short quality in midfield. Can't rely on McEleney and Murray being fit. I defended Abibi previously but he scares the life out of me every time he gets a back pass.

Hard to see us turning it on next week. Surely O'Kane has earned a start? He's fearless, I love that.

If we lose next week then what? I don't trust our owners to get another appointment right.

Bloody hell we're two games in and I'm already dreading the next match.

I think his record is something ridiculous now like two wins in eleven league games. I think it's pretty safe for us to make judgements now that aren't rash.

Put Magilton in charge and find the right long term replacement, don't rush this.

Not excusing the performance but surely their 2nd was a mile offside? The boys on Dundalk FM thought so too

The only sensible course of action. Giovagnoli will get us relegated.

We have 1 league win in our last 6 league games and that was away to derry and we have only won 1 of our last 7 home league matches. That's not acceptable at this stage. When is enough actually enough?
